BB cream is a new type of product which was developed to assist those who have had facial treatments and were not able to use traditional makeup to cover up the evidence. Many lines have BB cream, such as Boscia, Dr. J, Smashbox, and Too Face. I stumbled upon the Dior BB cream and simply loved the coverage and the effect that it had on my face. However, it is pricey and it only comes in one …Read more

May/09/2012

When I spoke to a Bobbi Brown MUA about a foundation appropriate for mature dry skin, this was the one recommended. Several people tried this foundation. I had not used mine at the time. None of the users, liked it. So, I like to decide for myself and tried it. I did like it. It gave me radiance. I have fairly good skin but I have a little tiny bit of sun damage on the bridge of my nose. I …Read more

May/08/2012

I have grown tired of the scents offered in the stores; with the exception of the very high end ones or the ones from what I call the microbreweries of the fragrance world. I do not want to smell like everyone else because fragrance is so personal . I do like many of the designer fragrances but I like to do my own thing. Many years ago there was a small shop nearby where you could design and …Read more

One day on a whim, I went down the line and sniffed all of the Hermes fragrances which were on display. None jumped out at me. Then I spied the unusual bottle with the name 24 Faubourg on it. After spritzing a little on my wrist, I instantly I fell in love with it. If you want to know more about the various notes in the fragrance, you can scroll down to read the other reviews. There are many …Read more

Treatments - Trader Joe's - Tea Tree Oil

Apr/21/2012

This is a natural product which has many uses. It is a pungent smelling oil from the Tea Tree, which I believe is found in Australia. It is an astringent. If you are experiencing hair loss possibly due to clogged pores, you can rub a few drops of the tea tree oil on to your scalp before washing your hair. It can help to clarify you scalp. A very interesting use is for, to put it bluntly-toe …Read more

I bought this on sale at Sephora on a whim since it was leaving the premises. I have super dry skin so I am always on the look out for somethign that helps. The color of this product is a light blue shade with a slight pleasant fragrance that is not irritating. When I first applied it to my face I was delighted and surprised by the light but hydrating texture. It absorbed into my face and I …Read more

Nov/12/2011

I am a red lipstick aficionado. I was going to a Chanel event and wanted to try something different. I had heard about the new laques and was curious. The holidays are coming soon and there is nothing as dressy and chic as a red lip. I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving before premiering my new lippie; but I could not wait. I liked the fact that it is like a stain in the staying …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Color Surge Duo in Strawberry Fudge

Oct/02/2011

I was able to select a duo from several Clinique eye shadows. This one looked unique in coloring. I wasn't sure how it would look on my skin tone because some of the red/purple colors can appear as if they were bruises rather than eye shadow-LOL! This one, due to the bit of gold in the colors, was kind to my warm ivory skin tone and green eyes. In fact, one day when I had worn this …Read more

Sep/15/2011

I have tried many eye makeup removers. I used to primarily buy vaseline because it was economical and did the job. Then when I didn't have to worry so much about money, I tried a few of the liquid makeup removers and only found them to be fair. I was soaking cotton ball after cotton ball trying to remove the mascara and it was still there and my undereye area was really getting rubbed. …Read more

Sep/09/2011

I received a sample of this and didn't know what to do with it. From the name of the product alone, I do not know if it is a sunscreen, a trreatment, moisturizer, or primer. I finally did the smart thing and read the back of the tube. One day when I wanted a natural look, I applied some to my face and was pleasantly surprised. There is no actual color to this product although when it …Read more
